4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
75cl bottle. Orange and hazy which is the most beautiful beer color in the world. The head is medium and white. Seams perfect till now. Nose : tart and strong pine and citrus notes. A bit soapy and wet laundry aromas of yeast. Little bit estery with predominant peach. Sip : medium density with low to medium carbonation. Oily texture. Creamy overall feeling in the mouth. Tartiness is sweet but soon the bitter hops taking over and create a very well balanced beer. The alcohol is quite hidden. Almost an easy to drink. Really well brewed strong beer. Masterpiece from La Rulles !

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml capped bottle pours a hazy golden orange color with a 3 finger white head that settles slowly and leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is malty with some light citrusy fruit and light spices and yeast. Taste is malty and light fruit sweetness with some mild citrusy bitterness with some herbal notes in the finish. Medium bodied with good carbonation and some alcohol leaving a pleasant feeling on the palate. A very pleasant and easy to drink ale given the high alcohol content. Recommended.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep golden colour, some sediment floating around. Big, fluffy head. Very floral aroma with some yeasty notes. Light body. Floral flavour with notes of yeast and citrus peels. Alcohol bitter finish. Not too shabby, perhaps a liiiiitle bit too strong for its own good.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Söt aromrik doft av röda bär, banan, malt och jäst. Smaken är först söt och frisk men övergår ganska kvickt till en bitter bitter torr finish. Slutsats; jag letar vidare efter ölet som övertygar mig om att Belgien också KAN.
